We here at African Services stands in solidarity with the Ethiopian community who were out in force outside the United Nations in what was a global day of action to protest Saudi Arabia's treatment of Ethiopian migrant workers in the kingdom.  

As reported by media and international human rights groups, the abuse, rapes and torture of Ethiopians in Saudi Arabia has escalated following Saudi Arabia's clampdown on undocumented workers last week.
